It says I voted! — Stephe ^@@^ (from my phone)

Before we get to Rain on TikTok…

Rain and leading lady Lim JiYeon have been nominated for their work in TV drama Welcome 2 Life, as well they should. The show wasn’t #1 in its time slot for its entire run for nothing — they and the plot and the cast were just that good!

Fictional couple “JaeSang” and “SiOn” are up for Best Couple in the 2019 MBC Drama Awards. International and Asian Clouds and fans are voting for them 3 times once a day on TikTok until 12/30, easy-peazy and in UNDER A MINUTE. For real! Please join us, because they truly deserve our support in this. Instructions are below. (HUGE thanks to _hannahssi_c and raincloudworld on Instagram!)

12/20/2019. Handsome Rain was spotted at the Shinsegae Duty Free mall (wow, just look at the place!) in the MyeongDong shopping district in Seoul today. The Shinsegae Group also has a new duty free mall in Gangnam District, and online shopping sites in Korean, English, and in Chinese, which might be why the lady with the mic was speaking in what sounded like a form of Chinese and the banners were Chinese as well. Gosh, he looks good! 👀☔ ^@@^ (Images credited as tagged. THX to everyone who shared! 😘)

Last Monday, 11/25, Ninja Assassin celebrated its 10th anniversary! The film that made Rain the FIRST Korean national to land the lead role in a Hollywood movie premiered in 2009 and caused quite a stir in many circles and demographics, oh yes.

Seems like just yesterday, here in Metro Atlanta, my friend and fellow martial arts aficionado Darrell said to me in an autumn 2008 E-mail, “Hey. Did you hear about this new movie being filmed, Ninja Assassin? It’s starring some K-Pop singer named Rain. What do you think? Should we be excited?” This was how I found out about the upcoming movie and Rain’s role in it.

Rain and his movie billboard at Times Square in late 2009. So proud! ^@@^

That means it was all him. Incredible.

And PLEASE, don’t get it twisted. Dancers do have expiration dates, but there is none on vocal cords. There will always be Rain music. This man will never stop singing and recording. Trust!

Read on to also find out about his plans and goals for the future. 🙂

(Yonhap Interview) New film ‘Uhm Bok-dong’ pushes Rain to his physical limit

SEOUL, Feb. 21 (Yonhap) — Having entered the K-pop scene as a teenager, Rain, whose real name is Jung Ji-hoon, has shown no lack of stamina so far while staging physically challenging pop performances on the K-pop scene.

Even given Jung’s unusually well-built physique, filming “Uhm Bok-dong,” a new drama film where he plays the main role, was a consuming physical challenge like never before.

You know what time it is! Grab a fork and your favorite dressing, toss well, and enjoy! ^@@^

6/10/2019. Fan cam, English. A truly endearing video from Rain’s North American fan meeting, in Vancouver, Canada. Included: Him and his birthday cake (tastes salty… oh, sorry, that was my finger LOL) and a fan cracking him up so much that he had trouble singing “Love Story.” Aww! ❤ And his VOICE. So. Pretty. ^@@^ (Source and credit: Alice Cho)
